Skyscraper by Harry Winston, Cabochon Sapphire and Diamond Ring from the New York Collection
You probably already have seen this ring many times. The first time I saw it, I wasn’t so sure about the cushion-cut cabochon “sugarloaf” shape of the sapphire, but I really grew fond of it with time. Cabochons* are so often underestimated. In this Skyscraper Ring, the very modern and simple perspective of the gem allows a particularly interesting view “inside” the sapphire, which I must say is a gem full of wonders when you look at it more carefully with a loupe… It sounds a little nerdy, but you’d be amazed… Maybe I’ll write a post about Sapphire inclusions one day!
* gems that are polished but not faceted – different types of cabochon exist
